“Celebrate” VSC Challenge #36

Good morning everyone! Yay! its July first which means 19 more days till my birthday. This month’s challenge theme is celebrate. There is always something to celebrate and an awesome handmade card to go with it. For this month’s challenge I really wanted to use all the new products that have arrived in the shop. I also really wanted to use our new paper bitty bags. Our DT Karen has inspired me use it as a pocket for my card that I created. I decided to use one of my first stamps I ever released which is “Baby Love” and made a card celebrating our newest member of our family, my God daughter. So for this project I made a card and instead of putting it into an envelope I stuffed it in a paper bag and added a tag to it. I will list all the products I used at the bottom.

“Favorite Technique” VSC Challenge #35

Good morning! It’s June first and we have a brand new challenge for you. This month we are showing you our favorite techniques. There are so many different techniques but one of my fave is watercoloring. I recently purchased a foxydori and a watercolor notebook insert. I decided that I would use it as a watercoloring journal. Here is a page I colored using my new “Suit it up” stamp set  

I used peerless water colors and love how intense the colors can be. I also made two cards using the new stamp set using other techniques like embossing and comic coloring. 

I made a gift card holder (love making these!)

I used the new May Arts gold twine to wrap the envelope.

The envelope is a new paper goods product found in the shop by whisker graphics. The one I’m using is the itty bitty Kraft with white stripes and is the perfect size for gift cards.  


I wrapped some natural may arts twine on the card and added V’s sweet enamel dots.




Thank you so much for stopping by and don’t forget to check out what the  talented DT created using their favorite techniques.

Happy April! It’s the first of the month so we have a new challenge for you. This month we will have an “Anything Goes ” theme. Upload your creations for a chance to win $10 towards our shop. 

Ok so for my project I made a tag and a card for my son for easter. Every year I buy my boys an easter basket and fill it up with some fave candies. I used my “easter fun ” stamp set for the card and tag. I was inspired by the talented Mary-Anne (who was our GDT member for the month of March) She had added arms and legs to the eggs and I loved it! I had to try it out. For the tag I used watercolors and for the card with the eggs sitting on a string lol I used Copic markers. I loved creating these and I know my son will love them. You can pick up the “Easter fun ” stamp set here. Now don’t forget to stop by our challenge blog for more DT inspiration and to upload your creation for a chance to win! Happy crafting!
